The sun sets on another day…
I rushed to sunset tonight expecting a spectacular light show. Sunset was good but the clouds kept it from being what I expected. Instead, I got subtle beauty and stunning shadows. I still enjoyed every moment.
I get a kick when people go off on tirades. It’s always fun to see someone so sure of everything that they obviously can’t be sure. With that in mind and everything else going on I thought I would immerse myself into a bit of a tirade.
A tirade by definition is somewhat negative. It is a treatise about something usually with anger associated and perhaps a little more. So, my tirade today is “are you living your best life and if not why not?” I’m not saying I’m living my perfect life, but it is pretty good. I think we all have levels that we want to achieve and if we set our goals correctly, we should be able to reach them. I’m not saying that we should set our goals to become president tomorrow, but we can set a goal to eventually run for president. I’m not saying we should set a goal to retire next week but we can set a goal that is realistic and make it happen. Those things are all about the future but why aren’t we living our best days today? Here we are sitting in a fantastic series of events, and we keep little things in our armor that eventually force us to be less than we can possibly be. It is our right, no it is our absolute necessity to be the best that we can be and live as powerfully as we can. Sure, I know people that are going to say that’s not true and that we should whine and complain and generally not enjoy any moment of our life. That is pure crap. It’s time for us to take control of ourselves and if we bring the rest of the world along with us, great. If they are unwilling or unable to come, we have to step forward and be the best that we can be. We have to be the best for ourselves and it’s up to you to be that.
You know there are times that life is just overwhelming. I’ve been in many of them. That’s when we rely on friends and let those friends lift us up. In spite of what our egos believe we cannot do it all and we cannot save everyone. Let that sink in for a second, we cannot do it all and we cannot save everyone. It’s time for you to save yourself, and time for me to do the same. We all have to find that path that takes us the direction we want to be and in theory we will live a fantastic life. In theory we won’t need theories, we will have a clear path.
So as the sun sets on another day, Wow what a day. Pepper and I enjoyed sunset, and I will always enjoy the moments that I can. Keep being you and push the envelope when you need to. There’s a big envelope out there and we just need to keep on trucking to make our world complete.
Sleep sweet, love life, and theories are good…
